"Women seem to compete better when they're competing against women. And once you bring men into the equation, they kind of dial it down a little bit. That's what we're seeing in a lot of the research."

You're going to get tired of me saying this, but hopefully you're not there yet. Fuck yes, Elizabeth Warren.

Birth control, abortions, prenatal care, postpartum care, child care — whatever we may think, whatever we may have been told — are not women’s issues. THEY ARE HUMAN ISSUES.There is a purely incandescent rage that comes over me now on a nearly daily basis over the blatant dehumanization of women that is currently sweeping the nation. It is exhausting. It is heart breaking. It is spirit crushing. And there’s nothing to be done but to continue to feel it, because I refuse to stop fighting for my right, my daughter’s right, my mother’s right, my sister’s right — the inalienable right of all women everywhere — to human dignity.

"The doctor and nurse were professional and kind, and it was clear that they understood our sorrow. They too apologized for what they had to do next. For the third time that day, I exposed my stomach to an ultrasound machine, and we saw images of our sick child forming in blurred outlines on the screen."

A personhood amendment that I can actually support!

"A person identifying as a woman and/or having a uterus shall retain all of the full, basic, and fundamental rights of a US citizen as promised by the Declaration of Independence—life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Congress and the States shall make no law that infringes upon a person's life, including but not limited to access to life-saving or life-improving healthcare, and/or medicines and procedures deemed necessary or beneficial by a medical professional and/or by the person having the uterus, procurement of which shall not be denied in and of itself by the presence of a uterus. Congress and the States shall make no law that infringes upon a person's liberty, including but not limited to autonomy over hir own body and the ability to make decisions regarding hir own healthcare. Congress and the States shall make no law that interferes with a person's pursuit of happiness, including but not limited to access to a full spectrum of reproductive options, freedom from forcible reproduction, and the ability to make decisions regarding family planning and family resources."

"Just how bad is the gap? Pretty bad. According to eHealthInsurance.com, in Chicago a 30-year-old woman pays 31 percent more than a man of her same age pays. In Louisville, Kentucky, a 40-year-old nonsmoking woman pays 53 percent more than a nonsmoking man of the same age. The nonsmoking woman even pays 14 percent more than the premium a male smoker pays."

Yes. THIS.
 
If I see one more progressive liberal saying we should protect planned parenthood because they do breast cancer or STD screenings I'm going to freakin' scream.

Stop saying we should support Planned Parenthood because they do more than reproductive-related services. Stop. Shut the fuck up about breast cancer screenings, and other STDs. Don't you see? Every time you repeat that shit you help further the intent of marginalizing reproductive health care. You help further the insane notion of separating out some woman's health-care issues from the reproductive ones as if a woman's health and her body is only her own to take care of when it comes to things that are not reproductive-related. Stop helping the anti-sex crowd.

Support Planned Parenthood because a woman is a whole person, and a healthy sex life is part of being an adult woman, and taking care of an entire human being includes taking care of the entire body. Support planned parenthood because they treat sexual organs as an integral part of an autonomous person's whole body, not despite of it!


My people, progressives, you're not helping our cause when you play into their game.

"Sifting mechanisms may include interviews with parents (since parents of low-performing students are less likely to show up for the interview), essays by students, letters of recommendation and scrutiny of attendance records. Low-achieving students enrolled in charters can, for example, be recommended for special education programs that the school lacks, thus forcing their transfer to a traditional public school."

This is the most authentic Chinese restaurant in Boston outside of Chinatown. Try the Northern Chinese specialties, and if you don't see something you want on the menu, order it anyway - they'll probably cook it for you! And if you're not sure what to order, the owner will give you lots of suggestions. If you must go with Americanized Chinese food, the General Gao's Tofu is to die for. The decor isn't amazing, but it's nicer than Chinatown. The service has always been good to me. This place is cheap and amazingly tasty.
